Add some more flavor to your meals with these herbs and spices. They go great with Gochugaru.

  • Ginger: The very finest ginger comes from small holder farmers on one to two acre plots of land off the Malabar Coast of India. Ginger has enjoyed some unusual uses, including warding off the plague during Henry VIII’s time. In the 19th century, ginger was commonly sprinkled on top of beer or ale and then stirred into the drink with a hot poker. Today, ginger is an essential ingredient in all kinds of sweet and savory dishes.
  • Garlic: McCormick partners with family owned farms to grow garlic that can be used as powder or minced. It adds instant flavor into whatever you’re cooking because our bottles contain garlic and only garlic, and nothing else. Garlic is a member of the lily family, native to Central Asia and cousin to leeks, chives, onions and shallots. It’s the most pungent of the lilies, with a strong flavor and aroma. Unless you’re using it to ward off vampires, as people have done since the 1700s, it pays to use allium sativum with a gentle hand.
  • Sesame SeedsToasted sesame seeds’ golden color and nutty flavor are perfect for encrusting chicken and fish. Add to Asian stir-fries, rice and noodles. Sprinkle on salads and vegetables.
  • ChivesA small grass-like perennial plant belonging to the onion family. They are aromatic, hardy, and grow in clumps of slender, onion like tubular leaves with lavender flowers in the spring.
  • OnionOnion powder makes it easy to add savory richness to just about any dish - from dips to soups, sauces, vegetables, chicken and burgers.
